The white bass bite has improved in the larger lakes like Herrington and Taylorsville, but has also come to life in smaller water like Elmer Davis, Guist Creek, and Beaver Lakes. The thermocline is running 15 to 20 ft. so crank baits seem to be the weapon of choice. In larger lakes you should do well to fish to the areas off of points, but also along grassy areas and in channels. If you’re fishing a smaller lake, look to target grassy shores and banks.
In Taylorsville Lake the catfish are feeding, being caught on cut bait when fishing on flats in 10 to 20 ft of water.
Currently, the hybrid fishing in Herrington lake is a little slow.
Barren River and Green River Lakes are seeing some good fishing.
- There is good bass action, both early and late in the day on larger sized Texas-rigged worms, deep-running crankbaits or grubs. You will have your best luck fishing on points or in the deep running channels.
- The crappie action is also good on these lakes. You’ll want to be fishing at 15 to 20 ft. near the channels or around brush using minnows or jigs.
- The bluegill bite is also on fire fishing 6 to 12 ft deep using wax worms, crickets and grasshoppers.
In the Elkhorn Creek the small mouth bite has been pretty heated for a while, but is even improving in the cooler weather. Buzz baits, crank baits, wacky worms, and grubs or other soft plastics are good go-to baits for these waters.
Don't forget; Think Safety and Fish On!
